What was once a textile mill from 1902 to 1991 has now become the embodiment of everything San Miguel has to offer for art lovers.
Fabrica La Aurora, just a short walk from the Parish, has left traces of its past to set the scene – think oil-stained floors – but is very much all about the present-day art scene in San Miguel de Allende.
Peruse the jewelry, furniture, and contemporary art stores, but be sure to leave time to have a bite to eat at the on-site Food Factory or Cafe de la Aurora.
But La Aurora is so much more than just an art gallery. It’s a place for the community to come together.
Here, visitors can actually watch artists at work, converse with local artisans during one of the many events, or even take a class themselves.
Address: Calz de La Aurora S/N, Aurora, 37710 San Miguel de Allende, Gto.
